Man's landing on the moon was our greatest technological achievement. The Apollo 11 mission was truly the stuff of dreams. For the first time, our species walked on another celestial body. Even more remarkable was their ability to make it back. This is the story of the July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 moon landing. Drama with digitally remastered original footage. Written by
The conversations between Armstrong, Aldrin and mission control after Commander Armstrong began descending the ladder of the lunar module were the actual voices of the astronauts on July 20 1969 and not those of the actors playing them. The actors simply mouthed the words when they were in frame. See more »
In new footage, shot for the movie in studio to represent the astronauts' activity on the moon, stars are visible in the black sky. While stars were visible in the sky to the astronauts during the real moon landing, they are not visible in any film the astronauts shot because the cameras' aperture had to be closed down to eliminate glare from the lunar surface. The stars were then too faint to register on the film. See more »
This film was OK, but it was destroyed with mistakes like a whooshing sound in once scene as command module and lunar module went past near the moon. It might appeal to those who know nothing about science, but to the majority of educated viewers, it is an insult to their intelligence. The final straw was when about half way thought the film, green 7-segment LED digital displays were in view. They were not even invented in 1969 and thus were not used in Apollo 11. I had to switch it off at that point - I had enough. The acting was reasonable, but on the whole I found this film boring. At least in The Dish movie (which was quite fictional), they used authentic equipment used in 1969. Producers should do their homework before embarking on a topic they know little of nothing about.
For the purists out there, don't bother with this film. Nothing beats the telecasts during moon landing in July 1969.
